Review: JW Marriott Grosvenor House London

Review: JW Marriott Grosvenor House London

In late October, I found myself in need of a place to stay in London following a trip to visit a friend in Bristol. I happened to be travelling with a friend, and on our return to London, we wanted to stay in a familiar and central locale with plenty of access to the city’s sites.

This time, I selected the JW Marriott Grosvenor House London, which is not to be confused with the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square just down the street.

Sadly, my time spent in hotels in the United Kingdom was one wherein the hard product consistently outperformed the soft, and I don’t feel that this property merits the premium it demands in either cash or points given its lack of polish.

While the hotel had superlative common areas and accessibility to the downtown core, we came to find that the service was seriously lacking for a luxury hotel.

JW Marriott Grosvenor House London – Booking

The booking process itself was straightforward, and as I usually do, I booked the three-night stay via the Marriott mobile app.

The cash price of the Superior Twin Room was £579 a night, or about a whopping $900 (CAD)! I instead opted to use my Bonvoy points, and due to the death of dynamic pricing managed to secure the stay for 190,000 Bonvoy points, plus a £90 ($150 CAD) co-payment option.

While this may not have been the best value for using points, the eye-watering prices for London hotels, when even a mediocre room will run £300 ($500+ CAD) per night, encouraged me to bite the bullet.

If you’re planning on booking a cash stay at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House London, be sure to get in touch with a qualified travel advisor with access to Marriott Luminous. You’ll pay the same as the best available refundable rate, but you’ll get a number of added perks, such as free breakfast, a $100 (USD) hotel credit, and priority for room upgrades.
